I am 13 years old.
My Grandfather, Vernon Edward Holland,
Died in The Vietnam War...


That's right,
We do remember.
We haven't forgot,
We remember a lot.

We remember that 58,000 plus
Lost their lives for us.

We breathed fresh air
While they died over there.

They did it
So we can live on free soil,
While they were living
In pain and turmoil.

Next time
When you wake up to a free day,

And the way they died,
For it to be this way
